Dear people at Kitty Hawk,

if you don't get this out of the door quickly, you'll be in real danger of pushing AMK's F-14 from the #1 spot on the Vapourkit hit parade.

In case you are looking at sales figures of your competitor's crooked-nosed offering in order to decide whether to release this: we're not buying the other one because we're waiting for yours.

Sincerely,
Gluefinger

SHADOFLASH I understand your frustration, I've had Revell's 1/32 SuperHornet pre-ordered since November 2016!
03. January at 16:59:29
playtime 222 I would like the badly hidden (as an example to the above) body of the guy in Airfix who still hasn't release the Sea Fury to be taken into account, your honour :D
03. January at 17:57:31
Sören Reifert They havent even gave us a release date yet and they also posted in May that the kit will be re-engineered.
So i wouldnt expect it anytime soon!
(btw its the same for the 32 Hornet from Revell)
@ playtime 222
Airfix has offically postponed the Sea Fury to January/February - I think it was 2-3 months ago.
03. January at 18:08:30
playtime 222 Yeah I know :( Checked with them at Telford too.
03. January at 22:19:10
Gluefinger A 1/32 Super Hornet from Revell? You mean, another alternative for an expensive, but less-than-impressive kit from TrumpyBoss? I didn't even know this had been announced. Now I am even more frustrated! Ah, ignorance is bliss - if only the marketing department s were aware of this... And so there's another item on my "TrumpyBoss have messed it up, so I'll wait for another" list which, apart from the Su-34, also includes the YF-23.
04. January at 08:21:42
Sören Reifert Be happy that they take the time to re-engineer the whole kit, instead of releasing it with flaws etc.!
But some folks will never be happy and btw again: KH never said they will release the Su-34 in 2017.
04. January at 09:46:55
Gluefinger >> Be happy that they take the time to re-engineer the whole kit,

Well, the announcement that re-engineering is on the way was made so long ago that even kits announced later have already appeared in the market. My guess is that the whole re-engineering business is a ploy, because they are unsure of the products success with the Hobby Boss alternative already available and don't want to admit it.

These days you can sit down for an hour or two at your CAD workstation, make some minor changes to the virtual design, generate a couple of pictures, post them on the net and claim that re-engineering is on the way. I think that's exactly the extent to which Kitty Hawk's "re-engineering" of the Su-34 went - or did anybody see something more tangible?
04. January at 16:43:16
Gluefinger Hey, Kitty Hawk -
you can take all the time you want now with "re-engineering" - I bit the bullet and bought the Hobby Boss offering. It turned out to be a great kit, well worth the money I spent on it, if you look at what you get. And there are now a number of rhinoplastic replacements to address its biggest (only?) shortcoming. Since most people who are interested in a quarter-scale Su-34 seem to have gone this way by now (and few have the shelf space for two) I guess it's "Platypus Has Fallen" for you now. Serves you right!
You non-customer,
Gluefinger

AMK are beginning to seriously p*ss me off with their vapourware campaign for this product.

For months now, they have bee insinuating that the release is just around the corner. See, for example, the thread on Britmodeller, where in November 2016 it was stated by "Martin @ AMK Hobby" that "Release date will be very very soon".

To me, this seems like a plot trying to stop people from buying competitors' products.

Had they been more honest I would have been willing to wait longer, but as it is, I have finally lost all trust in their announcements, and will throw my money in Tamiya's direction. As I will with ICM as they also have a product available that is sort of "announced" by AMK, but, considering the state of the AMK F-14, probably years away...

Gluefinger Unbelievable - more than a year has passed since I wrote my comment above. And still no product in sight. Good thing Tamiya is coming to the rescue with a D now.
19. April at 11:02:03
Florian Ayers Maybe they're fine tuning the mold to make it perfect. AMK's attention to detail is really superb, so I don't blame them if they want to maintain their high quality standard.

I'm annoyed as well, but I have 100 other models to take care of first. :)
19. April at 14:57:36
Augie Oh well, plenty of time to build the rest before its released :)
19. April at 23:59:14
Urban Gardini I'm glad that I haven't pre-ordered the kit...
